some clarification please

As I now seem to actually have readers here, I think I should clarify something about my writing style. It was pointed out to me that my posts seem to be written in a poetic form, yet they seem to have no poetic rhythm.

There is a very good reason for this: it's not poetry.
Each line represents a solitary thought.
To just clump all of the lines together, well, that would be unseemly.
At least in my opinion.
So, that is why when you are trying to read it,
and you try to find a specific tone and rhythm, it's not there.
Also, I think it just looks cooler this way.

And furthermore,
when I write like this, you will know it is extemporaneous.
Unlike my previous post, which I had composed the other day.
So it wasn't really written in delineated thoughts.
It was written as a continuous free flowing thought.

Are we clear now?
Oh, and just to fuck you up even more,
sometimes it will be a poem that I have written.
The kicker is I'm not going to tell you when it is or isn't.

Ok. Now are we clear?

The same thing happens to me in my writtin.
I mean, not in the blog that appears in my profile (That just for music), but in my other blog...the hiddin one...that soon it will be in my profile again, I have to change something.
But, well, I don't write poetry. I think I just write.
Is like the name that people call you when you write, draw, or something like that. The 'artist' thing...and..I don't know if I'm an artist. I would like to...I would like to be a writer...but...I think I'm not...yet.

People tends to put labels in everything.

i don't like all of the labels either. like everybody has to fit into a category.

i think i'm a writer. i've never been published in anything but my local newspaper. but i still think i'm a writer.

who is to say i'm not? i have literally 50 notebooks full of everything from plays, to essays, to poems, to jokes, to short stories.

i'm sure you are a writer too. even if you don't think you are yet.

just because you don't get paid to do it, doesn't mean you aren't one.

hey, whimsicalsun, i figured out how to translate your blog. mostly. you use alot of slang that the translation software can't read.

even still, i really enjoy it. what i've read of it, anyway. keep me informed as to when you go public with your other blog. i'd like to see what you have to say.
